Sliding Fee Scale

Our sliding fee scale is available to help patients afford their health care payments. Fees for services are adjusted based on eligibility, family size and gross monthly income. Patients who are uninsured or do not have enough insurance and whose household income qualifies can apply.

The sliding fee scale is based on the federal poverty guidelines. We require documentation including proof of one month’s worth of income to determine the fees for services rendered. Fees may vary based on eligibility, family size and gross monthly income.
